Can Largo Businesses Fail Because of Flooding?

Are high street stores at risk of flooding?

A high street retailer located in the center of a Largo, where there may be more congested drainage systems, may fare worse than malls and retail parks in the face of flooding. Unfortunately, business flooding can affect retail stores and give them little opportunity to re-open their doors in the immediate future. This can be incredibly tough for independent retailers as local economies are squeezed, and temporary closure affects monthly trade revenues. SERVPRO is a qualified commercial flood recovery service that can enter the property, remove water, and restore any damages to a preloss condition.

When is it safe to re-open a business after flooding?

  • Once the property is dry and free from contamination
  • The property has had a full safety inspection
  • Sometimes, a visit from an industrial hygienist may be necessary before re-opening

Is my business safe after flooding?

Part of the job of commercial flood damage technicians is to protect your Largo business. Most retailers have large window displays. These can often be broken by flash flooding, high winds, or flying debris. SERVPRO technicians can install full boards over windows to secure a structure during the period of closure. These board-ups can be essential to preventing looting or unlawful entry while restoration services are underway.

Our IICRC-certified technicians may also be able to recommend temporary security services to protect the premises and include fees within our overall service to ensure you only deal with one point of contact.

How does flooding hurt a business?

  • Stock damages as well as building damage that can be expensive to repair
  • A loss of revenues during a temporary closure or restoration
  • Higher chances of looting, trespass, or other forms of illegal activity

If your retail outlet becomes flooded, contact SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060.

SERVPRO Techs Can Handle Any Size or Type of Water Damage in Largo Properties

There are a huge number of reasons a business owner might call in SERVPRO for water damage cleanup. Since floodwater and pipe breaks do not bother scheduling occurring at the most convenient time, the techs are ready to come to perform mitigation actions 24/7.

SERVPRO technicians handle commercial water restoration for Largo businesses, and here are the most common reasons:

  • HVAC leaks
  • Plumbing issues
  • Roof leak
  • Sprinkler malfunction
  • Flooding

When SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians arrive on-site, they immediately scope the property to determine the root cause and the scale of the job. Water migrates rapidly, and finding every location with elevated moisture levels is crucial to ensure that there are no water-related secondary damages once the restoration job is completed.

Protecting the interior contents from damages from water is another priority. The techs can move items and equipment to a safe location on-site or perform a pack-up and bring the articles to a secure area off-site. The techs bring the things back in and put them back exactly where they belong, so there are no disruptions when the business reopens looking for items.

This SERVPRO location has a general contractor license #CBC1250662. This means once the team finishes removing the water and drying the structure and contents, they can also handle any repairs needed, from structural rebuilding right down to the painting of freshly installed walls and trim. For example, a wall with water damage may show deterioration in the form of warping or buckling. Sagging ceilings from a roof leak need to be removed as they cannot be repaired and pose a safety threat.

SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 brings professional water restoration services to local Largo businesses. The trained, certified technicians work to make the damage to the building, "Like it never even happened."

What Factors Impact Cleaning Fire-Damaged Largo Warehouses?

Post-fire Cleanup of Largo Commercial Property Focuses on Many Variables. 

After fire impacts your Largo warehouse, you need fast and focused cleaning and restoration efforts. Our fast response throughout the city can help when disaster strikes. 

What Factors Might Impact Smoke Removal? 

Fire damage restoration for Largo businesses like warehouses and manufacturing facilities can require several types of cleaning and restoration approaches. From the large open areas to stored stock and inventory, the spread and severity of smoke damages can significantly affect a structure immediately following a fire. Some of the factors that determine the type of soil or smoke damage left behind include:

  • Age of Materials – The older specific building materials are, the harder they will be to clean. While a warehouse might be made of many non-porous materials, those susceptible to fire damage are even more prone to harm if they are older.
  • Heat of the Fire – Even with the basic construction materials common to the smaller rooms and offices of the warehouse, the higher the heat, the greater the effects like charring or melting. 
  • Humidity – The moisture content of the property can leave more surfaces and contents open to permanent damage like staining. This wetness of the materials could result from firefighting efforts or higher relative humidity in the Greater Largo region. 
  • Impingement – Impinging is a collision of smoke and soils with surfaces and contents throughout the structure. An increase in warm air can cause a greater velocity and turbulence of the air and more contents and materials in the facility impacted. 

With so many factors that can influence the type of smoke, the thickness of residues, and the ease of cleaning commercial properties like your warehouse, fire restoration should be left to professionals. Our SERVPRO of Largo team is standing by to help 24/7 at (727) 586-0060.

7/8/2021 (Permalink)

Dental office SERVPRO has reliable technicians with state of the art equipment to handle any level of flood damage in your business.

SERVPRO Handles Cleanup and Other Flood Restoration Processes Simultaneously

A flooding incident can pose a significant risk for your dental practice when your office is flooded with contaminated water. The high humidity levels in the building following such an incident can also lead to secondary damage to the expensive dental equipment in your facility. Involving a professional cleaner changes the outcome of flood damage.

Evacuation of standing water or vulnerable equipment is one crucial process for containing flood damage in your Largo dental office. SERVPRO is well equipped to handle both processes since we can arrange pack-outs to a safe section of the building. We also have powerful extraction equipment to remove clear or residue-filled water within a short while. 

Experienced professionals can readily handle:

  • Biohazard remediation
  • Sewage cleanup
  • Flood restoration
  • Water Clean Up

Before deciding whether cleanup is sufficient or we have to take other steps to restore your facility, our SERVPRO technicians perform a thorough inspection of the loss. If there are porous materials such as carpets on the floors or soggy drywall, we need to perform controlled demolition to remove these materials before embarking on cleanup.

During cleanup, our technicians ensure sufficient agitation and sanitization of all affected areas. We spray EPA-registered disinfectants directly into the inundated sections before starting cleanup. We use cleaning agents with antimicrobial properties or apply sanitizers after finishing cleanup to guarantee sanitary conditions.

To finish up the restoration process we:

  • Refinish any structural areas stripped down
  • Dry all excess moisture
  • Perform deodorization

SERVPRO of Largo has significant experience handling flood damage in commercial establishments. Call us at (727) 586-0060 whenever you need assistance. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

With Potential Health Effects and Destructive Nature, Mold Colonies Should get Removed Immediately in Largo Buildings

An underrated damage situation to area businesses is the development and continued spread of mold and microbial threats. Mold removal companies might be plentiful in the Largo area, but few have the experience and reputation for providing the results you need.

Immediate Actions to Protect Your Largo Business After Mold Damage

Among the priorities of responding technicians and mold removal companies in Largo is the condition of impacted contents within the property. Your business often hinges on your wares and stock condition, which should also be a focus of any remediator arriving on-site. Using content relocation, we can often avoid unnecessary harm to these items or documents. Our technicians employ focused cleaning and restoration might be required by the cleaning technicians of our SERVPRO team. When belongings or inventory gets relocated to our nearby facility, we can help with:

  • Surface cleaning
  • Drying
  • Deodorization
  • Safe storage

Mold Inspections and Damage Assessment

Mold inspections play a vital role in keeping your business going after mold gets discovered. A thorough examination of the damage can identify where the problem areas exist and allow our responding technicians to establish appropriate containment strategies. These damage assessments can focus on:

  • Structural hazards
  • Active colonization
  • Moist/damp conditions
  • Damaged contents
  • Customer priorities

Mold Removal Strategies to Help Businesses Recover Quickly

There is no one set method for eliminating microbial threats that mold removal companies use. Instead, we utilize the obtained information from mold inspections to determine what hosting materials have become affected and their individual conditions. This information can determine which mold remediation strategy best suits the situation and should get used to maximize the efficacy of our response and ultimate result. Some of the options for mold removal include:

  • Surface sanding
  • Soda blasting
  • Antimicrobial cleaning
  • Controlled demolition

Are Black Mold Damage Repairs Needed? 

Mold can have a devastating effect on building materials and the entire structure. While our experienced remediation professionals work to limit black mold damage repairs and controlled demolition, these outcomes are often inevitable to some degree. When surface treatment remediation practices cannot achieve the intended mold removal outcome, more direct measures such as discarding these hosting materials are necessary. Replacement and repair involve our general contractor license to transition between mold remediation and the damage reconstruction required efficiently.

Choosing the right mold removal companies does not have to be difficult, as we are among the leading organizations in mold remediation, removal, and repairs. You can trust our SERVPRO of Largo team to help you through each stage of getting your business back up and running as usual. Call us today at (727) 586-0060.

Why Are Water Damage Cleanup Services Crucial for Largo Businesses?

4/12/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO logo SERVPRO of Largo is an excellent resource for the property owners of our community who are experiencing water damage.

Largo Commercial Establishments Are at High Risk of Suffering Water Damage. 

Originally an agricultural area primarily dedicated to citrus farming, hog farms, and cattle ranches, Largo has rapidly developed into a thriving commercial center. Today, relatively little of the city’s farming past remains. This past has mostly been covered up by numerous attractive residential developments, some picturesque golf courses, and several diverse businesses. The community’s transformation has been remarkable and so has the prosperity of local commercial enterprises. With that said, these businesses do face certain unique, environmental and weather-related water damage risks. These risks include everything from a greater chance of structural issues and malfunctioning appliances to increased instances of failing water containers. 

The Changing Economy of Largo

The rapid economic development of Largo over the past hundred or so years has been astounding. Incorporated in 1905, the community was initially nicknamed “Citrus City” because of its vast citrus fields and collection of industries related to citrus fruit distribution. This all began to change in the 1960s as the population boomed, increasing from 5,000 to about 20,000 over the decade, and more businesses started to locate in the city. Now, as a result of these changes, Largo’s economy is based primarily on services and retail sales. Some of the major employers in the area are:



  • Florida Suncoast Hospice, care centers for the elderly and chronically infirm
  • The Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), owner of the Largo Medical Center
  • The Palms of Largo, an assisted living facility
  • Publix Supermarkets, Inc., a popular chain of grocery stores in Florida
  • SCC Soft Computer Consultants, Inc., a medical laboratory information systems provider
  • Tech Data Corporation, a multinational distribution company specializing in IT services and products

Of course, in addition to all of these major businesses are several hotels, restaurants, and retail shops.

How Florida’s Environment and Weather Increase Commercial Water Damage Risks

Florida’s environment and weather pose a special threat to Largo business owners. The state’s salty ocean air, blisteringly hot and humid weather, and powerful cyclonic storms with their strong winds and heavy rainfalls, substantially increase these owners’ water damage risks in the following ways:



  • Strong winds often damage roofs and windows
  • Heavy rains increase the severity of leaks
  • Storm debris clogs drainage networks
  • Salty, humid air facilitates corrosion in appliances and water containers

With all this in mind, call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 if you ever need commercial-grade water damage cleanup services.

Are All Mold Remediation Companies Capable of Restoring Commercial Premises?

8/27/2020 (Permalink)

mold growing on wall and ceiling Mold can be off-putting to customers. Call SERVPRO for remediation.

Commercial Mold Removal Typically Requires Industrial Equipment and Resources. SERVPRO is a Largo-based Mold Remediator for your Business

Can I prevent mold in a commercial building?

Mold can grow if there is ample food supply, moisture, and temperature within your Largo business. Some of the most effective treatment for microbial growth is preventative. Identifying and repairing leaks in the structure or plumbing system can be a cost-saving method of controlling microbial growth. Equally, acting quickly at the first signs of mold using a dehumidifier and ventilating the space can be useful measures. However, there will be periods of inactivity in the building for many commercial businesses, for example, outside of working hours. If a microbial issue gets out of control, it can cause business interruption forcing a temporary closure. SERVPRO is a dedicated mold remediator that can ensure business interruption is minimal.

What measures can be taken against mold growth?

A professional commercial mold damage remediator in Largo typically conducts an air toxicity test when arriving on site. We may perform this test in both the affected area and the surrounding rooms. Depending on the infestation size, our team may need to bring industrial dehumidifiers, disinfectants, air scrubbers, and large air-movers. Our team can disinfect the area to create a sanitary environment. Using negative air pressure or decontamination tents may be set up in your property, ensuring that mold spores do not become airborne or spread.

  • What types of mold commonly affect commercial properties?
  • Penicillium which appears as a yellow or green mold colony
  • Aspergillus which frequently occurs in indoor environments
  • Stachybotrys also known as black mold

To minimize business interruption and maintain your commercial premises' safety due to microbial growth, contact SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060.

Where Do Retail Managers in Largo Look for Fire Recovery?

6/27/2020 (Permalink)

A Fire in your Retail Outlet Can Affect Both Stock and Contents. SERVPRO is the Largo-based Commercial Fire Restoration Firm for your Store.

What Can I Save from a Fire?

Fires can occur at any time of year in your Largo retail store and cause a significant amount of harm. Not only do hot smokes affect the walls, ceilings, and floors, much of your display likely becomes harmed too. Smoke residues may reside on shelving, clothing rails, hangers, as well as any pictures or decor. To restore a building efficiently, it is essential to understand what is salvageable before any work begins. SERVPRO technicians conduct a thorough visual inspection and use their industry-leading training to assess which materials are restorable accurately versus which materials need replacing. In minor to moderate fires, our technicians can restore the majority of your store's decor using state-of-the-art fire restoration equipment.

What equipment can I use to remove smoke from hanging rails, drapery rods, and pictures?

The benefit of using commercial fire restoration services here in Largo is that many materials damaged by smoke or charring are restorable. Substantial items can often benefit from immersion cleaning. We usually employ immersion cleaning for metals that become soiled by smokes, which can include chandeliers, rails, or lighting fixtures. Our team fully-submerge the affected item into a cleaning solvent. The immersion cleaner then uses ultrasonic waves to agitate the solution creating bubbles. As thousands of these bubbles explode against the metal's surface, it creates both heat and pressure, which is exceptionally effective at removing smoke residues from their surfaces.

What materials are suitable for immersion cleaning?

  • Metal fixtures or hanging rails
  • Some ornaments that are non-porous 
  • Synthetic materials that are resistant to high temperatures including some plastics

Before you dispose of smoke soiled items in your retail store, contact SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060.

My Self-Storage Facility Has Fire Damage. Who Do I Call for Help?

5/29/2020 (Permalink)

"Contact us" Contact SERVPRO for restoration on your business property today. We are available 24/7.

Contact SERVPRO to Deal With the Commercial Fire Damage in Your Largo Self Storage Facility

Many self-storage facilities are constructed with metal and concrete. Some owners believe their facilities cannot sustain extensive damage after a fire, but this is not always the case. The intense heat a fire produces can cause concrete to crack and metal to distort, resulting in permanent structural damage to your Largo self-storage facility.

What sort of destruction can I expect to see in my self-storage facility?

Commercial fire damage in a Largo self-storage facility can be significant. Self-storage facilities allow their customers to empty contents from their homes, businesses, and garages and store them at the property. Even though you may have protected your facility with a written contract, stipulating that tenants should not keep hazardous materials, things like paint and flammable home cleaning products can find their way there. Other items that can contribute to the severity of fire include:

Boxes full of old documents

Mattresses

Photo albums

The embers that ignite the contents of one storage unit could cause significant destruction to your facility. Many fires that happen in such facilities go undetected for a while until a facility manager or tenant sees flames or smoke billowing from within the structure. The unit can be in full blaze when the firefighters arrive. They often use water and flame retardant to extinguish fires, which can cause more damage to your facility. Smoke can also ruin the structure and its contents.

What can SERVPRO do to restore my self-storage facility?

We can examine the extent to the damage and identify what we can or cannot salvage. Our expertise enables us to respond to the different challenges created when smoke residues and smells affected different materials and surfaces. We can use different methods to agitate surfaces. Agitation means moving the surfaces we are cleaning, moving the cleaning solutions, or both. Our SERVPRO team uses agitation to dislodge or free soils. We also use different products to produce chemical reactions and different cleaning techniques to eliminate residues. The basic principles we follow when cleaning smoke residues are:

Find the residues.

Identify their type.

Identify the type of surfaces they are on.

Capture the residues in solution or in dry particulate form.

Eliminate the residues.

Dispose of them properly.

Do you perform reconstruction work? 

If your self-storage facility needs reconstruction work to get back to its original condition, we can help. We can make the restoration work easier by mitigating the damage and rebuilding the affected areas. This can enable you to save time and money.

Dealing with fire damage at a business premise is stressful. Call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 to help you bring things back to normal. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

A SERVPRO employee cleaning a grey flooring with water damage Water damage to your Dunedin business can bring large issues, let us help.

Let SERVPRO’s expertise assist you through your Dunedin commercial water loss.

Plumbing fittings inside walls or under employee kitchen sinks can break at any time. If it is during regular office hours, an employee may observe the water and turn off the main water valve to limit the damage. A break during non-office hours when no one is around can lead to hundreds of gallons of water spreading over the entire office to greet employees when arriving for work in the morning. A break like this example can lead to closing the office and sending everyone home until the water is removed and the office is returned to normal.

SERVPRO provides commercial water removal services in Dunedin and surrounding areas. We are available 24/7 and can be onsite in less than 4 hours. We have operated in the Dunedin area for over 35 years and know how important it is to respond fast to water disasters of all types. We also offer our Emergency READY Program (ERP) to customers who appreciate the value of emergency planning to manage emergencies of all types.

Drying Structure and Floors 

Our experience has shown that whenever carpets sitting on cement floors become wet, the carpet separates from the backing. This process is called delamination. In many cases, the carpets and padding must be removed and replaced. Office furniture is either moved to a dry area or supported on blocks while floors are dried. Extensive water leaks may require flood cuts along the walls to expose the inside of the wall to enable complete drying.

Customers interested in joining our ERP program can work with one of our employees to create a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile. Once we develop a profile, it helps everyone involved in a disaster to initiate the appropriate response. For example, we include phone numbers to call to trigger assistance, location of water shutoff valves and keys to locked rooms, and much more. This information can reduce the reaction time significantly, limit the damage, and the time the business must shut down until we complete repairs.

We also have Contractor Licenses: General: CBC1250662, Mold Remediation: MRSR1163 enabling our company to provide a full suite of services from water removal to drying, damage repair, and reconstruction.

Commercial Water Removal Dunedin – Remove All Moisture to Avoid Mold Growth

Many commercial building owners are focused on cleaning up any visible standing water, drying their floors, and restarting operations as quickly as possible. Lost workdays mean lost revenue and potentially lost customers, so it is essential to restart everything immediately. Sometimes not all of the moisture is removed, which can lead to issues later on.

SERVPRO has been providing commercial water removal services in Dunedin for 35 years. We are part of the community and participate in many community organizations, including the local chamber of commerce. Over the years, we have helped clients with almost every water damage situation. We have seen clients who assumed everything was dry, only to experience significant mold growth after the initial event.

Why is the Problem Not Fixed When the Water Has Dried?

The floors may be dry, and there are no visible signs of water after your employees have mopped up all of the standing water. Many clients do not realize that water damage may have penetrated the floor to the ceiling of the floor below. Water may have also flowed into wall cavities behind baseboards and drywall. These are perfect conditions for mold to grow, causing a musty odor and even structural damage if not removed.

SERVPRO understands that it is essential to return your commercial business to normal operations as quickly as possible. That's why we are available on a 24/7 basis and can mobilize our team to focus on removing all water and identifying high moisture areas that need attention.

Moisture meters and infrared cameras are used to identify those areas that may still contain moisture. Based on our experience, we can quickly identify the areas that should be checked and verified. Once moisture pockets are identified, SERVPRO can bring in the appropriate equipment to dry these areas. Air movers with hoses attached can blow dry moisture absorbing air into these pockets.

Don't take a chance with mold, remove all of the moisture the first time!

Call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 for 24/7 service. We proudly serve Indian Rocks Beach, Clearwater Beach, Belleair Shores, and the surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Mold Recovery in All Stages for a Largo Warehouse

Humidity, water loss incidents, and other situations that allow for persistent dampness can leave a Largo warehouse suffering the effects of mold growth. With how quickly these conditions can spread throughout your facility, you need a team of remediation specialists that can address all stages of mold recovery in your business. Our SERVPRO professionals can help with the initial inspection of your warehouse, the remediation of current mold, and long-term solutions to prevent recurrences.

As the manager of a warehouse, you have a large stock of wares and goods stored in the facility that can quickly become at risk when mold damage affects your Largo business. With the experience of our professionals accredited as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT), we can offer even massive commercial clients the confidence and real-time solutions for their properties.

Preliminary 

When our team first arrives at your building, we must begin our assessment of the warehouse to determine the presence of mold and where the highest concentrations of colonization exist. Once we have an understanding of where problem areas exist, we can remove at-risk inventory from this region and establish barriers to prevent the spread of colonies.

Remediation 

Our SERVPRO team has multiple effective remediation strategies, including sanding, soda blasting, dry ice blasting, antimicrobial agents, and controlled demolition. Because we are also a licensed (MRSR1163) mold remediation contractor, we have in-house professionals to accomplish this demolition and full-scale reconstruction when necessary, so your business does not wait for the work that it needs.

Addressing Moisture

Identifying the source of the moisture that allowed mold growth in the first place is an essential step to preventing a recurrence in the immediate future. We can thoroughly inspect the property with hygrometers and other moisture meters to identify vulnerabilities and work to repair and recover these points to reduce the likelihood of another mold growth incident after a short period.

Mold growth can cause health effects for your business and your employees, but our SERVPRO of Largo team has a fast response to help. We can work to protect the stocked inventory of your warehouse along with repairing and restoring damaged areas of the facility to make mold losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (727) 586-0060.

How Your Auto Shop in Largo Can Stay Prepared for Flood Damages

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

Three SERVPRO trucks in front of a building. Flood Damage is serious, call SERVPRO right away in Largo.

Let us help you get your Largo business back to it original state after flood damage.

Safeguarding your auto shop in Largo against dangers and damages is imperative for staying in business long term. Hurricanes and other storms can have the potential to put you out of business if you are unprepared, even if the storm appears less severe than you might have seen in seasons past. Any heavy rainstorm could become the tipping point that causes your shop to sustain flood damage. Staying prepared can help you to control costs and stay afloat even with your revenue cut off while you undergo repairs and restorations. Take these steps to make sure that you don't go under when the next storm hits.

Get Flood Insurance

Perhaps the single most influential factor in whether an auto shop in Largo can survive flood damage is the type and amount of insurance the business has. Most conventional insurance policies cover everything except for flooding unless you pay extra for that coverage. Every year, we get calls from local homes and businesses that believe they have storm damage covered through their insurance policies, but ultimately do not receive their payouts because they do not have a flood coverage policy. Make sure that your insurance policy covers flood damages and, if it does not, we strongly recommend investing in a separate flood damage policy.

Set up a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile

The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) system exists to help you get emergency mitigation services to your business as fast as possible after a flood. The ERP system is designed with business owners in mind and allows you to upload relevant documents, information, and building layouts that help our technicians react fast and control the situation better than if you had placed a standard phone call.

If A Water Incident Damages Your Floors In Your Largo Office Building Our Experts Can Help

Restoring An Office Building’s Floors With Commercial Water Damage In Largo

One of the problems facing property owners in many areas near water, including Largo, involves the harm water from both interior leaks and those that come from outdoors. You generally have more control over the situation when intrusive water comes from a broken pipe than when water comes from elsewhere.

We restore all types of businesses in Largo when commercial water damage strikes and makes carrying out or participating in regular activities difficult or even impossible. When your business includes retail and office tenants, the flooring types in each can vary from one to the next. The technicians from SERVPRO understand how these different floors respond to water and what can occur. We also understand which methods provide optimal results.

Some stores prefer harder surfaces, such as painted concrete. While many view this as a non-porous material because of its widespread use outside, concrete’s use outside happens because of its durability. It does absorb water, but evaporation occurs much more slowly than the rate of absorption. Paint can also slow down how fast moisture leaves and enters the air. While this occurs, calcium deposits can temporarily discolor the surface. These deposits disappear upon HEPA vacuuming.

More complex to restore but still well within our expertise, tile made of vinyl or asphalt derivatives require technicians with advanced expertise to assure you of results that minimize permanent damage from water. Part of the reason tile takes more effort to restore lies in the use of glues to adhere each piece onto the subfloor. With these, white deposits arise from the breaking down of sealer wax. We can easily clean this, and the customer should not view this as a sign of permanent damage.

Drying a wood-based subfloor becomes crucial to restoring the floor’s appearance. We may find that we can dry the underlay from below, instead of removing tiles to apply heat and extraction pads. When tiles lie on top of concrete, asphalt tiles often survive where vinyl ones do not. Many times, customers choose to replace instead of restore vinyl tiles, as this is often the less costly option.

When the vibrant colors of ceramic tile play a role in a store’s appearance, the tiles themselves come out perfectly. Water rarely causes damage to these durable pieces, but when grout deteriorated before the water loss event, it can seep in underneath and cause problems there. Checking the amount of moisture reveals a great deal of information on how SERVPRO technicians need to respond. Air movers might suffice, or pulling up an area of tile so drying must take place before resetting the pieces to prevent moisture causing water damage and microbial infestation.

SERVPRO of Largo serves businesses in Dunedin, all of Belleair, and also Indian Rocks Beach. Call us at (727) 586-0060 with your water damage needs so we can protect your floors and the rest of your property. Our General Contractor License means we can make things “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Water Cleanup Operations In A Largo Businesses

Don't let water damage do this to your business. Call SERVPRO today.

How SERVPRO can help you clean up your building from water damage.

Despite being surrounded by a bay and the Gulf, most Largo businesses deal with more problems from mundane issues like broken water pipes and other plumbing failures.

For a food processing facility in Largo, commercial water cleanup means restoring the building to a condition that meets city health standards. To do that, SERVPRO restoration specialists have to completely dry the facility and clean surfaces so that preparation and packaging can resume.

In a commercial building, initial water removal is often easier than in a private home. Here, there are no carpets or pads to contend with, so our personnel can quickly clear out all standing water from concrete floors using pumps for large amounts, extraction wands for water just covering the surface, and then long-handled squeegees to push any trace amounts out from corners and under machinery to the nearest exit.

If the water source was from a malfunctioning sprinkler, food preparation and packaging surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and dried. SERVPRO specialists use cleaning agents designed for the purpose and carefully use them with cloths and brushes when needed to eliminate any possible airborne contaminants that mixed with the water as it fell.

After removing the water from the floor and wiping down other surfaces, our specialists next dry the facility. We use air movers to generate warm, dry air throughout the building. Combined with exhaust fans at main entrances and exits, they force out the damp, inside air and draw moisture out of building materials such as drywall and wood support structure.

If the interior is exceptionally humid, specialists install one or more dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of the air. This action lowers the humidity level and speeds up the natural evaporation process. Once completed, our restoration team examines all preparation and packaging surfaces for any trace amounts of dirt or water for hand-cleaning and drying.

At SERVPRO of Largo, we understand that being shut down interrupts employee paychecks and can drive away customers to other suppliers. Our restoration teams quickly work to help every business reopen their doors and prevent that from happening. If you need our expertise, call (727) 586-0060 today.

Largo Businesses, Water Loss, SERVPRO for Fast Recovery

SERVPRO Provides Industry-Leading Water Removal Equipment for Largo Businesses--Really!!

Reasons Water Removal Services Can be Necessary for Your Largo Restaurant

Water damage in your restaurant doesn’t happen only from major storms, flooding, or natural disasters. Sometimes, human error and malfunctioning systems in the structure can cause a great deal of damage. Whatever the cause, the results can be financially and structurally devastating, and you’ll need professional help from a remediation company to help restore your building.
 
Water removal services for your Largo business are not something you want to ignore. Once you have a problem, you should get in touch with our staff at SERVPRO right away. We can help you any time of the day or week, and we have the training and experience to get your restaurant back up and running as usual in no time.
 
Broken pipes are one problem that can occur. The sinks and bathrooms in your building are in frequent use, and sometimes pipes can break due to corrosion, improper installation, or a sudden increase in water pressure. SERVPRO techs can clean up the water that is now sitting all over the floor and dry the affected area. Truck-mounted pumps are used if the water is deep enough so that the standing water is removed as quickly as possible. Once that is done, we can get rid of the rest of the moisture with industrial fans and dehumidifiers that are monitored daily.
 
Your sewage system can become clogged, and water backflows when a toilet is flushed, or water is poured down a drain. It usually happens when items which are non-biodegradable are flushed down the toilet or when oil is poured into sinks, which creates hazardous contaminants in the floodwater that results.
 
Your building’s roof should also be checked regularly and maintained properly so that it can function as it should. When it is left unchecked instead, you could be missing leaks that have formed from inclement weather or shingles that have fallen off. A slow leak can do a fair amount of damage, especially since they generally go unseen for a long time.
 
When heavy appliances such as refrigerators, walk-in freezers,  dishwashers or washing machines malfunction, you can easily wind up with indoor flooding that can wreak havoc on your building and other items in your restaurant.
 
SERVPRO of Largo understands that when your business in Indian Rocks Beach, Harbor Bluffs or Dunedin experiences a water damage emergency, time is of the essence. Call one of our staff members at (727) 586-0060, so we can help you clean up the mess and get you serving customers again like usual.

How Water Damage Affects Your Harbor Bluffs Restaurant

12/10/2018 (Permalink)

Don't let water damage close your restaurant. Call SERVPRO to remove the water and get your restaurant back to serving food.

Commercial Water Removal Makes Your Harbor Bluffs Kitchen Safe Again

Part of operating a restaurant in Harbor Bluffs is keeping a spotless kitchen that always passes health inspector's visits, which requires constant cleaning of equipment, floors, bathrooms, and everywhere else in your business. Water is heavily relied on in such situations, but a small break in a feed line to the ice maker or sinks can create a small flood all over your kitchen.  

SERVPRO can help get your restaurant back on track with our commercial water removal services in Harbor Bluffs. Getting everything dried up after an incident is crucial to keeping your doors open. We can provide you with a detailed history of all our activities, so you can discuss the incident more confidently during any inspections that occur because of the broken water lines. Helping you with a detailed list of lost inventory can hasten your recovery efforts, as well. We do everything possible to help keep your doors from ever closing more than necessary.  

The equipment we choose to remove the water flooding your restaurant depends on the amount covering your floors when we arrive. We may need to use our pump truck, or hand-held extraction wands may prove sufficiently capable of handling the amount satisfactorily.  

Depending on your flooring type, we may need to remove the flooring, either permanently for new replacement flooring, or so to completely dry the underlay that supports the walking surface. Other times, we only need to apply several drying mats to pull the moisture out of the floor to prevent glue from loosening under tiles.  

When foodstuffs become damaged during the initial break, or after flooding happens during closed hours, we dispose of these items for you and include them on the inventory sheets. Appliances that became saturated with water should have an inspection with a certified appliances repair technician. We can arrange for this to speed up your recovery and to help keep costs low if you prefer. Turning such items on can cause additional damage that inspection and minor maintenance could have prevented.  

SERVPRO of Largo can help you keep your restaurant's doors open to the public and service delicious food. Call us when you need commercial water removal after a water line breaks or slips free of its fittings. Our 24-hour service line, (727) 586-0060, is available every day of the year.

There Are Benefits To Hiring SERVPRO To Handle Your Commercial Flood Damage Disaster In Indian Rocks Beach

10/22/2018 (Permalink)

Finding the right recovery solution for your gym following a flood can seem overwhelming.

Overcoming Flooding In Your Indian Rocks Beach Gym

These days more people are making it a point to get in better shape and take care of themselves, making your Indian Rocks Beach gym a popular destination for these health-conscious individuals. However, much like other homes and businesses throughout the area, severe weather systems and high-powered tropical storms or hurricanes could lead to severe complications for the building. Flooding is among the worst of these potential outcomes, but restoring these effects can happen with efficiency when you choose the right restoration team.

While you might have experienced flooding before living in the Indian Rocks Beach area, overcoming flood damage is not a process that can happen overnight. These restorations take time, but most of all they require unique training and expertise to know what needs to happen and when. Our SERVPRO technicians have continued training in the best approaches to recover properties affected by flooding.

A primary concern for a gym owner is the contents of the building. Throughout the open floor plan, you have many machines that operate electronically to provide accurate information to your customers about their progress and current conditions. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to remove these at-risk machines from the affected area to preserve them as part of our pack-out mitigation process. Once restoration nears completion, these removed items can get returned to their original position.

Our fast extraction can help preserve other elements of your business as well, such as the flooring material that you use. As is customary in many gyms, a softer flooring material can help your customers from getting injured, but it can also absorb water quickly in flooding situations. Through extraction and drying efforts with our advanced equipment, we work to preserve materials throughout your building as much as possible.

Finding the right recovery solution for your gym following a flood can seem overwhelming. With the right professional restoration team, we can shoulder the weight of returning your business to the way it used to be. Give our SERVPRO of Largo emergency response team a call 24/7 at (727) 586-0060.

How Commercial Flood Damage Remediation Helps Businesses in Indian Rocks Beach

8/30/2018 (Permalink)

When flooding affects the waiting room or any other room in your office, contact SERVPRO to investigate the damage.

Team SERVPRO Considers Safety Before Drying Out Your Flooded Property

You may be left wondering how to address commercial flood damage once the flood waters recede. It is the time to return your business to its earlier state by determining what is salvageable and replacing some items if necessary. If you do not take the right measures, problems such as deterioration of wall and wood coverings, as well as mold growth arise. A professional inspects your Indian Rocks Beach property to determine the most appropriate restoration procedures.
 
There are many factors that our SERVPRO technicians look at when choosing the most suitable procedures and equipment to use during commercial flood damage in Indian Rocks Beach. For instance, we look at the amount of time the property has experienced exposure to flood water, the degree of damage and the amount of area which need restoration. It means we have to come up with a detailed project timeline after the inspection which addresses the unique needs of the situation at hand.
 
Removal of standing water is a critical step since the longer the water remains on your property, the more additional damage you should expect. For instance, our SERVPRO technicians can use wholly or partially submerged pumps to pump vast quantities of water from your property. We are careful when using the pumps since they are not tolerant of lumps of mud, stones, leaves and any related particles. The amount of time we take during this step depends on the area we are drying and the quantity of water that is present.
 
Before we start to dry your commercial building, we address the safety and health concerns of the occupants. Even when the power is off in the neighborhood, we always assume all electrical circuits are live and turn off the power. We also protect our eyes, hands, and mouth by wearing the right personal protective equipment. It is also the work of our team to perform temporary repairs to windows and roofs to protect your building from additional damage as we are drying the site.
 
SERVPRO of Largo uses advanced technology and techniques to restore your commercial property after a storm, mold, fire, and water damage. Call us at (727) 586-0060 and allow us to return your business to its normal operations.

Appliance Failures Can Require Water Removal Services In Your Largo Restaurant

7/11/2018 (Permalink)

Flooding and water loss incidents can limit your ability to run a successful business in Largo.

Water Removal Services

Flooding and water loss incidents can limit your ability to run a successful business in Largo. While more substantial events like flooding can affect multiple businesses at once, appliance failures can lead to a similar set of damages inside of your property that require immediate attention. The longer that you wait to remedy the situation, the more structural components weaken and the harder it becomes to restore the affected areas quickly.

Arguably there are many causes of significant water damage to a restaurant. Running an eatery requires a lot of equipment that has to run all day long to keep your food fresh, your dishes clean, or the uniforms pristine. When any of these large appliances decide to quit working correctly, your Largo restaurant could fall victim to a situation which requires professional water removal services.

One of the fortunate aspects is that with appliance failures like these in a restaurant, your normal operating hours can ensure that you discover the issue before your entire facility gets affected. From the moment that you discover the problem, the clock is ticking to get the damage under control and restored before the issues get worse. That’s when you should be calling our experienced SERVPRO professionals.

As you well know, having your restaurant out of commission for restorations and repairs carries more weight than not serving food to hungry patrons. You have a business that your employees depend on for their livelihoods, and a reputation to uphold that can either sink or raise your profit margins. In the food and beverage industry, you cannot expect to succeed with your doors closed, so getting the right professionals like our SERVPRO technicians to work quickly on removing the water and restoring the damage is critical.

When you are contending with a high volume of water inside of your restaurant, you need a team of professionals that can arrive quickly and get to work on restoring the damage that this water has caused. You can always rely on our SERVPRO of Largo water damage restoration specialists to help you overcome any obstacles you face in getting your doors back open. Give us a call today at (727) 586-0060.

Why You Should Choose Professional Flood Restoration For Your Indian Rocks Beach Restaurant

6/22/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Largo is available 24/7 to respond to your restaurant's water damage emergency.

SERVPRO is The #1 Choice When It Comes to Commercial Flood Restoration

As a business owner, you can appreciate that the flow of traffic into your building is critical to your success and overall profits. Having a restaurant in Indian Rocks Beach is no exception to this. While it might be a challenge enough to keep this flow of traffic coming through your doors each and every day, it is almost impossible to do this if your business has fallen victim to a substantial water loss incident or flooding.

From a business standpoint, you might consider trying to remedy the damage from this disaster on your own to save the cost or the insurance claim, but this is unwise. Your Indian Rocks Beach restaurant requires a lot of specific restoration practices following flood damages, and the best choice that you can make is to contact our SERVPRO professionals.

From the moment that our team of technicians arrives at your restaurant, we work quickly to assess the full scope of the damage. We want to understand every task that we must perform to restore your business, and what it takes to get your doors back open to the hungry public the quickest.

Once the assessment completes, our SERVPRO professionals often have to focus on extraction. With a varying degree of materials that this saturation and pooling might impact, several approaches could be necessary. For example, portable pumps might work fine for concrete and tiled areas, but a weighted extractor is also often required for carpeted areas.

Our goal is to limit the structural damage to your building as much as possible and to remove all of the moisture and dampness present throughout the affected areas. This practice eliminates the possibility of worsening conditions like fungal growth, which can shut down your business for a much longer period.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Flood damages to your restaurant affect much more than your inability to serve food to the loyal patrons in the area. Without the proper restoration, you could be leading your business down a path that keeps your doors shut to these local customers for a long time. Trust the experience of our SERVPRO of Largo technicians to help you clean up the mess and get back to your regular business more efficiently. Give us a call today at (727) 586-0060.

Commercial Water Damage Cleanup in Your Indian Rocks Business

4/3/2018 (Permalink)

Sprinkler malfunctions can leave your commercial space with water damage requiring professional restoration services.

Rely on SERVPRO for Thorough Commercial Water Damage Restoration

If your commercial building in Indian Rocks Beach is older, there is a chance that your sprinkler system is outdated. It is essential for the safety and protection of your building, employees, documents, and customers to have a working sprinkler system. However, if your sprinkler system is outdated, broken, or just malfunctions, it can discharge water. If it is not caught quickly, extensive damage can be caused throughout your building.

Although commercial water damage from malfunctioning sprinklers is mostly avoidable by performing regular maintenance on them, sometimes accidents still happen. When your Indian Rocks Business is underwater for any reason, it is essential for you to act quickly. Our staff at SERVPRO are always standing by to help you out when your business suffers a disaster like this.

Once we have dried your business out, structural items such as subfloors and walls may need cleaning. We use professional products and clean restorable materials with an appropriate method for the kind of material. Our goal is to make your building look as good, if not better than, it did before the water loss.

For most cases, SERVPRO techs have a list of items which need to be cleaned after damage like this. All contents exposed to water should be evaluated. Any wood furniture, storage areas, cloth, or closets are checked for contents that need cleaning and deodorizing. We are careful not to overlook anything. At the minimum, we clean any upholstery, furniture, and draperies as is appropriate, clean any contents needed, and return your contents to their original positions.

Our IICRC certified technicians finalize everything by making sure you are happy with the job we did. Moisture levels are checked one last time to ensure your building is dry, and we do a walk-through to see that everything is complete. We also do a walk-through with you and make sure to fix any problems as necessary. All of our supplies and equipment are then removed.

SERVPRO of Largo prides ourselves on being thorough when drying and cleaning your building in Belleair, Largo, or Harbor Bluffs after water damage. Contact us immediately at (727) 586-0060 so we can help you get your business back to the way it was.

The Importance of Expedient Water Removal to Your Largo Apartment Complex

2/12/2018 (Permalink)

Tenants in your apartment buildings look for a dry, great smelling place to live. Contact SERVPRO should your building or unit suffer water damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Quickly, Ready to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Property

Owning apartment buildings in Largo can sometimes be quite a hassle. While there are times when everything is running smoothly, you are always at the mercy of something going wrong with an individual apartment unit that requires immediate attention or repair. When you are amid a water emergency in an apartment, acting quickly can mitigate financial losses in several different ways.
 
Your apartments are never going to get adequately prepared for needing commercial water removal services in Largo. There are many possible scenarios for needing water damage remediation. With this in mind, your best solution is to contact professional restoration specialists like ours at SERVPRO to help you quickly manage the situation and get things back to the way they were before the incident. There are several potential problems with substantial water damage to a single unit, and the more you understand about the threats you face, the more you can appreciate the importance of professional restoration.
 
One of the primary problems with needing water removal services to one of the apartments that you own is the difficulty that the leasees have in living comfortably amid the damage. If you have not dealt with this concern right away, it can be impossible for a family to continue living in the apartment while you attempt to resolve the damages.
 
Another concern that you face with substantial water damage that requires SERVPRO removal services is an adjacent unit to the one that suffered the brunt of the damage. Water is not always good at staying in one place, and as it spreads to commonly shared walls between units, the effects and lingering symptoms of the water emergency could spread to these adjoining rooms.
 
When you think of the kind of costs that you face from attempting to resolve the issue on your own, professional restoration services like the ones our SERVPRO team can offer just make sense. We can quickly dispatch specialists and assess the full range of the damage while we work to extract the water and dry the area thoroughly. We ensure that we have entirely removed the water, as well as made necessary minor repairs to affected surfaces where possible, to offer the most comprehensive restoration process.
 
Our experienced team at SERVPRO of Largo is available for any level of restoration emergency that you might face. Help to mitigate your out of pocket expenses by getting the job done quickly and correctly. We are available anytime at (727) 586-0060.

Commercial Water Removal in Belleair Bluffs

1/3/2018 (Permalink)

If contaminated water enters your daycare facility, SERVPRO properly sanitizes all the affected areas.

SERVPRO Acts Fast to Keep Your Belleair Bluffs Daycare Safe after Water Damage

A little water spills into every Belleair Bluffs business at some point. In most cases, it is a simple matter to find the leak and begin removing the water while business goes on around our technicians.

For a few businesses in Belleair Bluffs, commercial water removal is slightly different. When the leak sends water across the floor of a daycare operation, then SERVPRO restoration crews have to get everything dry and safe before this business can reopen its doors. That makes getting it done quickly and correctly more important than ever. No parent is going to leave their child where large pumps and other noisy equipment is running.

In a facility like a daycare center, finding the leak is usually simple. The most common problems are rusted out connections in water lines or a failure in the out-going water line. For a failed connection, our task is fairly simple. Our IICRC-certified technicians turn off the water and then replace the failed connection. Occasionally, technicians have to replace a section of the pipe as well.

If the failure is an out-going water line, the task is more involved. We still replace the pipe, connections, and possibly the toilet, as with other failures, but there is the additional threat of contaminated water. Before we begin the repair and removal, we spray the standing water and affected surfaces like storage cabinets, large toys, and chairs with an anti-fungal cleaning agent to prevent contaminating clean areas of the center as we complete the task.

Once we finish spraying, SERVPRO crews bring in pumps and powered extraction wands. The pumps remove most of the water, and the wands finish the task over the surfaces, to include carpeting. If there is a pad underneath the carpet, however, we recommend removing it. Carpet pads deteriorate quickly, are very difficult to dry, and are usually so cheap that is more cost effective for us to remove and replace them.

SERVPRO of Largo has served our community and other parts of Florida for over twenty years. If your business has flooded or simply has water on a storage room floor, call us today at (727) 586-0060. We are here to help.

Drying Methods for Commercial Flood Damage from Storms in Your Largo Clothing Boutique

10/24/2017 (Permalink)

If you experience flood damage in your clothing boutique, call SERVPRO to dry out your space and get your doors open sooner.

Reopen the Doors to Your Clothing Boutique after Flood Damage by Calling SERVPRO

Flooding is a risk to any business, so your Largo company is no exception. It is a fact that one in four businesses shuts down from a natural disaster and never gets to reopen, and over eighty percent of all natural disasters which are presidentially declared involve flooding. If flooding has damaged your clothing boutique, you need professional help right away.

Commercial flood damage to your Largo business can be devastating. It not only ruins merchandise but can damage the structure of your building as well. SERVPRO is a professional remediation company, and all our employees are trained and certified to handle flooding from storms in a timely fashion so your business can be up and running again as soon as possible.

Getting your business back in order does not just involve extracting all the standing water. It also involves our technicians drying and sanitizing the building, plus salvaging anything that we can. Airflow is one of the most important tools which we use. Drying your structure efficiently requires us to know the right techniques for using airflow during the drying process.

We consider a standard pool table to understand the correct way to use airflow. When a billiard ball is banked, it has a reaction to the angle at which it hits the bumper. Airflow works in the same way. If the air mover blows right at a wall, air bounces back, plus it also forces moisture into the wall, which is not good! When the air mover is directed at a forty-five-degree angle, the wall bounces the air back, carrying away the moisture, it is then replaced by drier air.

We put the air movers in a clockwise pattern with the inlet facing the wall and the snout against the wall. We ensure that all the walls affected are in the stream of air. For SERVPRO techs to accomplish this, we might have to put additional air movers in windows, offsets, and closets. Every time we monitor the equipment, we reposition air movers to the left or right in a circular pattern, so your building is evenly dried.

SERVPRO of Largo is thorough, but fast in drying out your clothing boutique and getting your doors open to the public again. If you own a business in the areas of Belleair Bluffs, Largo, or Indian Rocks Beach, you can reach us anytime you are in need at (727) 586-0060.

Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Belleair Beach

If your business experiences water damage, call SERVPRO to restore your property.

Quick and Efficient Water Restoration Services

Water and flood damage in Belleair Beach can have a significant impact on your business. It can destroy valuable items and documents, and undo work that took many years to complete. Worse still, you may have to relocate while the building is undergoing repairs. In the end, you may lose a lot of time and even important clients along the way.

When a water disaster happens, you can count on SERVPRO for quick and efficient commercial water damage restoration services in Belleair Beach. We have a thorough emergency response team that can return your premises to preloss conditions in no time, "Like it never even happened."

The first step our IICRC-trained technicians take is using special equipment to inspect the severity of the commercial water damage. Once this is done, they begin extracting any standing water. The exact process depends on whether the water is inside the property or on the property (or both, in some cases).

To counter water damage under the property, we use an extractor to vacuum up the water so that the contents are no longer soaking wet. If the culprit was a broken pipe, we fix it and then eliminate contaminated soil, spray antimicrobial products, and add new, fresh soil.

To deal with water damage inside the property, we first remove the furniture from the area or place it on blocks. If the carpeting and padding were contaminated with dirty water, we usually throw them away. Clean water can be dried off of the carpet using special procedures. If the wall also sustained water damage, we make small holes to allow air movement for a quicker drying process.

When plumbing leaks happen in a multi-story building like a hotel or office building, switching off the water supply at the main valve is important to prevent further water damage.  We identify where the problem is and then check whether the water valve is located nearby. Turning off the water supply at the mains can also prevent additional damage from mold and mildew. Keep track of your monthly water bills and maintain safety protocols at your business to minimize commercial water damage.

If you detect the presence of water damage in your premises, SERVPRO of Largo can help restore your property. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and our technicians have access to advanced tools and products to ease the restoration process. For queries and emergency services, we are on call 24/7 at (727) 586-0060.

Standing water from broken water lines at one of the top floors can quickly create an increased humidity in the air throughout your office building as moisture works toward finding a natural state of equilibrium. Documents, electronic equipment, HVAC systems, and everything else in your office faces an increasingly higher risk of damage the longer water remains. SERVPRO has the equipment to remove the water that is flooding your office and the technicians to do it correctly the first time.
 
Just as no job is too large or too small for us to complete, SERVPRO employees can get your office dry at any level of your building. Broken water pipes can spew water out at several gallons per minute, and when this happens at higher levels of a building, lower floors can be affected soon after. Water spreads horizontally, as well, inside structural blockades such as ceilings, only to descend in outer areas, expanding the scope of flooding as water is pulled down by gravity.
 
The technicians at SERVPRO use hygrometers, moisture meters, and infrared scanners to detect all of the water, no matter where it has 'disappeared' to inside your building's interior structure. Standing water is easily seen and extracted with pump trucks or easily carried, using smaller units that extract water wherever they are needed, but hidden water requires increased technology before being found. Our IICRC certifications show we have the training to restore your entire building to a dry state, “Like it never even happened.”
 
What we do is important for the future of your building and your employees' health. Increased humidity in a building, which can occur easily if flood damage is not correctly mitigated, can affect both adversely. Microbial growth can begin in as little as two days after water first comes into contact with materials, and rust can affect metal items in a similar amount of time. Both can create problems for your staff and your building's safety. Increased humidity can also damage electronic door locks and other security measures.
 
SERVPRO of Largo wants to help you and your employees by restoring your place of business to how it should be, safe, healthy, and dry. Contact us at (727) 586-0060, regardless of the day or time so we can begin helping you accomplish the restorations needed.

How a Small Leak Anywhere in a Gift Shop can Create Extensive Commercial Water Damage in Largo

4/25/2017 (Permalink)

Your gift shop needs to be open so that customers continue to purchase items to take back home with them. Call SERVPRO after a water damage event.

Our SERVPRO Technicians are Trained to Determine the Source of the Water Damage


Florida has many wonderful and spectacular sites to see, and this often includes small and large gift shops. Window shopping and browsing is a part of many vacations to our great state. Out-of-state tourists, and some locals, too, love the various surprises often found inside area gift shops.
 
Largo is home to many gift shops, but one emergency that can close doors and ruin businesses is commercial water damage. One route to this disaster is a leak, but this can happen in a multitude of ways. Some of these can go unnoticed for weeks, or even months. Damage becomes increasingly more and more extensive the longer water, and its existing effects, are left alone.
 
When SERVPRO technicians are called in to repair water damage, we look for all areas that have been affected. Many times, we locate hidden damage that the business owner was unaware of.  These areas need to be repaired so that damage stops. It is very easy for water damage to spread, even after the water has been removed because of the way many materials react when exposed to water.
 
Water can cause many building materials to swell up. When the water is removed, swollen materials do not always return to their original condition. They can remain swollen, but instead of having their pores full of water, they are now full of air. These pores not only hold moisture if the humidity level rises again, and also decrease the strength of the material, but they also create tiny 'breaking points' where the material eventually crumbles apart.
 
Flooring can also be damaged by water and elevated moisture levels. Debris is less likely to be swept up when vacuumed, leading to worn areas more quickly. Padding can end up being more heavily compressed prematurely. Stain marks from furniture legs can also develop over time when humid conditions are present. These marks are most often brought on by saturation, but this is not the only way they can happen.
 
When exposed to moisture, wood frames around doors and windows are prone to swell. This can lead to problems when opening or closing them. Water stains on ceilings and walls are another issue often related to water damage.
 
Because these problems can all exist in one small area, SERVPRO of Largo has experts in all of these types of situations and more. Calling us at (727) 586-0060 is the first step in discovering all of the existing damage. Then we can begin the process of repairing and restoring your building so that both current damage is eliminated and future damage is effectively prevented.
